The gentleman's name you are seeking is Dennis Tito, from Santa Monica, CA. His flight was made possible in part by the company I work for, Space Adventures, Ltd.

Is there a particular reason you are seeking Mr. Tito?

The next one who paid himself is South-African Mark Shuttleworth ...
In fact back in 1991 the japanese journalist Tojechiro AKIYAMA was a paying crewmember on the Russian MIR spacestation but the mission was paid by Japanese TV station TBS ...

....and we can only hope that the next one will NOT be that kid from the N'Sync band.

I felt sick when I read about that.

You'd think Walter Cronkite would be going up
